THE CONFIDENCE MAN JP -The Movie- (コンフィデンスマンJP ロマンス編) , dir. Akira Tanaka, Japan 2019, 116 min., Japanese with English subtitles


Confidence man – a person who swindles others by means of a confidence game. Dako (Masami Nagasawa), Boku-chan (Masahiro Higashide), Richard (Fumiyo Kohinata), and Igarashi (Shinya Kote) are professional con men whose ambitions are larger than life and reach far beyond Japan. Setting their sights on a legendary diamond said to be in the possession of ruthless Hong Kong mafia queen Ran Riu (Yuko Takeuchi), they attempt a heist using their best abilities. However, when a new player enters the game – the devilishly handsome conman Jessie (Haruma Miura), who is after the ‘Ice Princess’ Ran himself – their best laid plans may be derailed. Throw a Japanese yakuza (Yosuke Eguchi) with a personal grudge into the mix, and the story really picks up the pace. Who will win the game in the end? 

As hilarious as it is entertaining, this dizzying tale of con men, mobsters, and a grand heist, with a dash of personal intrigue, is sure to delight the whole family. An original story adapted from the hit TV drama series of the same name.
